Project Centipede Collects for Children in Romania

The VCC has supported Project Centipede (Projekt Tausendfüssler) for many years. Project Centipede, a registered Austrian charity, was founded on 3 March 1990 in Vienna to aid Romanian orphans. Over 400 children in Romania benefit from the donations of banana boxes filled with food and hygiene articles, school supplies, clothing and shoes, as well as the provision of fresh milk to the orphanage children.

Two trips per year are made to deliver these boxes to the the Sânmartin/Csikszenmárton orphanage, four elementary schools in Mercurea Ciuc/Csikszereda, and a school for mentally handicapped children and youth in Olteni/Oltszem.

Please help us to continue our support of these children, as it is only possible with the support of individuals, churches and other groups who are interested in the welfare of children.

The next Project Centipede trip to Romania will be on 4 November, and we invite you to join us to give the children your love, as well as the gifts we have for them.
